Economic Policy In Canada. You are an economist working for the department of Immigration and Citizenship Canada (ICC). The Minister for ICI needs to decide whether to increase, decrease, or keep the level of annual immigration to Canada unchanged. The Minister is leaning towards increasing the number of annual immigrants because of the opinion article that was posted on the CBC news site (see below). As an unbiased economic policy analyst, you are asked to write a formal 2 to 3-page briefing note (approximately 1000 words) seeking a decision from the Minister, based on your recommendations, on action regarding the increase/decrease/no change of annual immigration levels. Keep in mind that the Minister has read the article below. Your briefing note should present economic arguments based on facts and may require a rebuttal of the information found in the article below, should you deem it misleading and/or inaccurate based on what you have learned in class throughout the semester.
Of importance, your briefing note should clearly state options and your recommendation for increasing, decreasing, or keeping the level of annual immigration to Canada unchanged; and give much thought to environment.
